As well as offering weekly Drama session for 11-18 year old and giving performances at The Hawth throughout the year The Hawth Youth Theatre is also offering a range of Workshops for young people, beginning in half term with a Puppet Making Masterclass.

Professional puppet maker and puppeteer Dan Guy will lead the Puppet Making on Saturday 13 February from 2pm-5pm. Participants will be guided through designing, making and bringing to life their very own animal puppet to take home. The masterclass is suitable for 11 – 18 year olds.

Following on from the success of last years Fantastic Mr Fox: Play in a Week, The Hawth Youth Theatre will be offering another Play in a Week workshop, this time for Matilda from Monday 15 – Friday 19 February, 10am-4pm. Children aged 6 – 10 years are invited to come along for a fun-packed half term performance week and be part of the wonderful cast of Roald Dahl’s much-loved story of a sweet, bright little girl of wondrous intelligence who is very different from the rest of her family! Matilda escapes into a world of reading and exercising her mind, so much she develops some very special powers that come in useful when she meets the cruel school principal Agatha Trunchbull!

Places for the workshop are limited and early booking is advised.

Tickets: £65.

On Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 March the Youth Theatre will be offering a Mask Masterclass to those aged 11 – 18 years. Come along and learn the magical art of full mask performance in this two day workshop. Then on the Wednesday evening the participants will perform the winning entries from Theatre South Easts 10 Line Tale competition, all written by young people in Sussex.

Masterclass tickets: £30 (Hawth Youth Theatre members: £20)

Performance tickets: £5
